Lax Widow

That's right, lacrosse season has officially started and I am now an offical lacrosse widow. For those that don't know, Paul is the varsity lax coach at the highschool, he loves it and the guys are great, but I must admit that I get a wee bit jealous of all the time they get to spend with him. Sometimes it's hard to "share" him, but I know he's changing lives when he's with those guys, he cares about them so much. He always says, he doesn't need a boy, because he has 30+ all spring to deal with.
With the onset of lacrosse season, my days get longer, I'm more worn out and the girls are CRAZY! Stir crazy from being inside because it isn't quite warm enough (what am I saying, its not warm AT ALL!) to be outside and crazy from going days without seeing Daddy. Its not like they don't get to see him at all, but literally its for minutes a day. I can't wait for warm weather when we can go watch the guys practice at the field and the girls can run free!
We have, on the other hand, been spending more time with friends, which is so nice! We had poker night one night at the Wrecker's house and spent some time at another friend's last night. The kids run wild, the husbands hang in the garage and the ladies feed the kids and drink margaritas. If you know me, this is no surprise that last night I was letting my "inner" dance spirit free and did a "drop it down low" move. On the "low" we all heard a "rrrriiiippppp"...yup, my pants ripped right down the seem! I haven't laughed that hard in a LONG time! Thank goodness I decided to throw on my "momma" undies, instead of something pretty...I'm still cracking up just thinking about it!
Today, is my uncle's birthday. It has been an incredibly difficult year for him, so it makes this birthday even more special to have him around. We didn't do anything to out of the ordinary for a Sunday: gathered at the folks, ate and had cake. Big wee one helped blow out the birthday candles and she sang, she also helped Mimi make uncle's cake. That girl just loves to cook!
We're ready for spring to roll in...hear are a few pics from the past week...I lied, the server won't let me upload at this time, so I'll post pics tomorrow. I also have a really cute video clip of little wee one dancing, be on the look out :-)

I know how you feel about being a widow. Do I ever!
Wish I could've been there when you split your pants!! Would've loved to have laughed that hard!
Hang in there sweets...
